Back in 2008, developer Level-5 hit on a winning combination with their Nintendo DS hit Professor Layton and the Curious Village. Offering a unique blend of mind-bending puzzles and a mysterious storyline, it seemed as though Layton was blazing the trail for a new breed of adventure game. But then a strange thing happened – or more accurately, no strange thing happened. Nobody tried to repeat their success. Nobody thought it was a formula they could run with. And with the exception of another Professor Layton release, the world of gaming hasn't seen anything like it in the last two years. That is, they haven't seen anything like it until now.
